Positive Negatives & Why Comics use arts-based education to provide tailored, engaging learning experiences around the globe. Through Amplify, they are partnering with Coventry University to create emergency health and sexual and reproductive health education resources for use in refugee camps in Lebanon. Originally, they had intended to pilot in Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan, but due to organizational shifts they have decided to relocate their pilots to where they have other programming with Syrian refugees in Lebanon. They want to use ethnographic research and individual stories to make comics that are engaging, culturally appropriate, and informative.
By creating compelling content, they’ll be helping students learn about SRHR in a range of educational formats, both formal and informal. Acting as the bridge between specialists and tech-savvy communication specialists, Why Comics will equip displaced women to make confident, informed decisions around their own sexual and reproductive health and rights.
